Students facilitated UTS’s first Climate Fresk workshop on September 16th 2022 at the LX.lab. Watch the video in this post to see how staff and students created a really memorable and lively on-campus event. Together they unpicked the connections between different nodes in the climate system and revealed how our current crisis has come about.

The student facilitators commented on the educational efficacy of an approach that put them in the driver’s seat.

I feel like I’m learning more at a deeper level to actually be able to explain it to other people. That’s somehow helping me learn.

We gave the student sustainability leaders strategic support and training alongside ownership of the workshop. The pay-off for this was a really collaborative and fun learning experience.

They say if you can teach something to someone, that’s when it really sticks in your brain.
